? We continue with fond memories of one of last summers projects, the cob construction of a new chicken coop in the Arcosanti gardens.
Workshop participants H.W. sifts clay and silt, which the crew dug from Arcosanti ground near the Agua Fria riverbed.

? Ji Seon and Angelo have fun stomping to mix the river sand, clay and straw into plaster.

? Construction crew leader and cob construction teacher Maggie Lamb and helper take a turn in mixing the plaster with their bare feet.
Dave forms the plaster into “cobs” to make application easier.
More to come about this project on 1/7/08.
